The deal, a joint venture between RCA and Breydon Preston’s Chameleon Records, returns the singer to the Sony Entertainment fold. Brandy previously called Sony home, but left after her 2008 album “Human” failed to live up to expectations.
“Throughout her career, Brandy has consistently won the vote as everyone’s favorite female vocalist,” Peter Edge, chief executive of RCA Music Group, said in a statement. “I am sure that in her next chapter at RCA and in partnership with Breyon Prescott, we will record her most exciting music to date.”
Brandy will be joining a restructured RCA, that includes such high profile artists as Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake, Ke$sha and R. Kelly.
“This is truly a blessing,” Brandy said in a statement. “Breyon Prescott, Peter Edge and Tom Corson [RCA Music Group’s president and chief operating officer] believe in me and have introduced me to a home that also believes and knows exactly what to do with the type of music I’m doing. Breyon and the team at RCA/Chameleon are creative and forward-thinking and I am thrilled to be working with them.”
Brandy says she’s currently in the studio working on her first RCA release and expects it to become available in early 2012.
